Recently I have been really trying to increase the amount of protein in my diet, reading up on protein powders (I’ll admit I find it all rather confusing) and protein bars as I really want to gain muscle and definition with my workouts, so when Oomi offered me the chance to try their protein-packed noodles I jumped at the chance, especially as they are also gluten free! I’d much rather obtain my protein through my meals than using protein powder – but this is just a personal preference and doesn’t mean I won’t use protein powder in the future – but I digress.
I have to say I was a little apprehensive though when I realised the source of the protein is from white fish. I don’t know why, as I really like white fish – I suppose it just seemed unusual to me, the idea of noodles made with fish protein, I don’t know if I expected them to feel squishy like fish or to smell like fish!?
So it’s that time of year again and my second Juneathon! Can’t believe we’re already halfway through 2016!!! Where is the time going!?! Anyway, I digress, back to Juneathon – this time, though, we don’t have to do a daily blog post, but I think a weekly round-up of the exercise I’ve been up to would be good (it’ll help me remember what I’ve been up to – my memory is appalling, I blame the kids ;-P)! So here we go…
20 Bicep Curls (under own body weight) Fitness Blender workout – HIIT Cardio Butt and Thigh Workout 5 Day Challenge to Burn Fat and Build Lean Muscle Day 5 – I did this at my mum and dad’s house and unfortunately didn’t bring my weights with me, but it was still an intense workout!
Finished with a 30-second plank and 30-second side plank repeated twice.
Then an arm workout with 1.5kg weights (20 bicep curls, 20 upright rows, 20 tricep kickbacks, 20 overhead shoulder presses and 15 bent over reverse fly) repeated 3 times
30-second plank and 30-second side plank twice
